There is an easy way to install Minecraft. Just add this PPA and install the Minecraft Installer:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minecraft-installer-peeps/minecraft-installer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install minecraft-installer
Note: This is not a Minecraft / Mojang ppa, but it does install the real launcher.
The installer will download the current ...
You can host your server like this:
Create a directory for your server.
cd && mkdir Server
Change your active directory to the new folder.
Let's download the latest minecraft server (in this case 1.8.8).
wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/versions/1.8.8/minecraft_server.1.8.8.jar -O minecraft_server.jar
We need to have ...
You need to install the relevant libraries in 32-bit.
For example, "sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386" should get rid of the "libGLU.so.1 => not found".
With some effort I'm sure you can find the packages for the other libraries.
Because this is a subjective question I’m sure you will get different opinions here (especially as it is an elementary OS User forum). Firstly elementary is stable (I have similar specifications to you) and the drivers are supported.
I spend much of my time helping Windows user transition to Linux (specifically elementary) and there are clues in your ...
This is a late answer, but I'll try to help in case you're still having this problem or if someone else stumbles upon this page. :) Note that this might not be a recommended or most optimal way of solving these kinds of issues, but it's how I do it.
My assumption is that it has to do with Elementary being 64-bit
This can indeed be the case. You can ...
The Intel graphics card (integrated in your CPU) is most likely enabled by default instead of the nvidia card. Even after installing the appropriate nvidia drivers, you'll have to tell the OS to switch to the more powerful card before using graphics intensive applications.
So, after installing the nvidia driver (from the AppCenter or by using the sudo ...
It depends how the game uses the configurations: if the game uses SDL (FEZ, for example), you can try to modify the gamecontrollerdb.txt, or you can create an environment variable with a new mapping. Check this site: http://generalarcade.com/gamepadtool/
Usually, emulators allow to remap the controller, you can check the settings in the application
But if ...
AppImages can run on elementary and other major distros today. Cody Garver from the elementary team sits on the Snap Format oversight board, although elementary hasn't committed to using Snaps in the AppCenter.
The next step for AppCenter is Houston, which should make it much easier to publish apps for elementary. The idea is to turn the app center into a ...
I suggest reading these two articles since I can't be any better in stating my point of view. (I will put a extract of them for those who want to decide if the articles are worth reading):
"A couple of years ago, gaming on Linux was a joke. There were a few open source games that, while fun, were nothing compared to the Call of Dutys, Battlefields, ...
This is an issue with Wine. Because GTA SA uses some method to close itself which Wine is not familiar with, it exits unexpectedly. This makes Wine unable to reset the resolution back.
The most easy fix for this is to run GTA SA in a "virtual desktop". You can do this by going to Wine configuration, Graphics and turning on virtual desktops.
You can create a script to launch the game that disable hot corners before launching game then enable them back after closing the game.
# Make backup of the settings
dconf dump /org/pantheon/desktop/gala/behavior/ > ~/.hotcorner.dconf
# Disable hot corner (just reset,as they are disabled by default)
dconf reset ...
